In the Shadow of Knucklas Castle – a tale of Arthur, Guinevere and the Giants

By Katy Mac

Cover of King Arthur book

This book has been specially written to raise funds for Knucklas Castle Community Land Project.
It retells the ancient legend about King Arthur’s marriage to Guinevere in Knucklas Castle.
Lively full page illustrations – including an imaginary, but usable, ancient map of the area, big giants and hidden faces as well as some lovely photographs – it will catch the interest of readers and non-readers in all age groups, as will the story itself with its unsolved mysteries.
For those who want to know more about the story and its origins, there are notes in the back and references to sources.
There is also information about Knucklas Castle Community Land Project who will receive all profits from the sales.
